Abett,

"That depends." It depends on quite a few things. It depends on your training level, your training intensity, and what the rest of your workout looks like. A novice or beginning lifter can recover from a heavy (to them) squat session and be stronger before the next workout. As your experience level and strength levels increase, the amount of time you need to recover from a given workout increases. For example, elite level powerlifters rarely do heavy deadlifts more than once every two weeks.

The real answer to your question is: Find a workout program that matches your goals and run it. There are some fullbody routines that include squatting (at less than full intensity/volume) every (workout) day. Other routines may restrict squatting to once a week or twice a week. It all depends on the intensity & volume of the workout and the ability of the lifter.

If you give us more information as to where you are in your journey and what your goals are, we can probably give you better information.
